4:23 pm
morgan. i'm historic day. >> what does this mean ? to make it is exciting. it's very exciting because in 24 days, we went from a tao of 20,000 to 21 20,000 to 21,000. that is a good return. if you go back to 1999, the tao was at 10,000, he went to 11,000. that was a 10% increase. as our number gets bigger the increase is not as great. >> a lot of people are wondering, does this have a lot to do with donald trump because the tone of his message ? >> i would call it to words, rational exuberance. the rational part is what we know. we know what the gdp is. we know it's a slow growth economy. we know the inflation rate is low.
4:24 pm
but the market is skyrocketed. that is the exuberance part. that's based on speculation. the market is speculating that the president will be able to execute on his promises. three basic promises, tax reduction, for you, for businesses and for estates. that is huge. the second thing, the regulation. some deregulation environmentally and financially. that will stimulate the economy. and the third thing is infrastructure. last night he talked about putting $1 trillion of infrastructure into the market. there are benefactors of that. that is the exuberance part. if he can deliver on that, but as soon as the legislature the controlling body start to monkey with his ideas, and maybe slow it down that is when you will see the market have a pullback. it all depends on what he's able to do. . >> and that probably answers my next question. the speculation and the idea that other experts are saying, because of donald trump we could top 30,000 at the end of this presidency.
4:25 pm
select i think growth in the economy, if there is tax reduction, and infrastructure in place there are certain companies that are beneficiaries of that. were all trying to look at who those companies might be get in early so that you will get the growth appreciation. that will depend on the government. to see if they will approve some of those ideas. select for folks who are sitting at home watching the stock job, what should they do with the finances ? >> i'm sure everyone who is investing in the market, and especially the s&p 500 you were asking if you do take money off of the table ? if you are a baby boomer and preparing for retirement you want to take advantage of the opportunity. at the end of the day if you

4:28 pm
4:29 pm
the president put forth an agenda which i think was un- american. he talked about taking away healthcare from nearly 30 million people. he talked about building a wall. he really played on the fears of people. . >> i thought it was an opportunity to unite democrats and republicans. and instead he seemed to want to lay blame on the democrats.
4:30 pm
every time he wanted to identify something that did not work. select house lawmakers weigh in on president. strachan's first address before a joint session of congress. but repot -- republicans expressed positive remarks about the speech. . >> i wanted to find out what was your take on the speech ? how did you feel about it ? >> i thought it was his best speech to date. he is coming into his own as a president. he never had a long history as a career politician. he has had a lot of room for improvement. and last night showed that he is taking it seriously. and he is listening to the american people and becoming more and more presidential every day. . >> it is the most presidential we have heard him sound in a while. but a lot of people are feeling the tone of his speech.
4:31 pm
we've been talking about the dow today. do you feel that he did enough to unite people ? we just heard one of the democrats saying, we were looking forward to unification. do you think he did that ? >> absolutely. he touched on just about everything he could've possibly touched upon. that every american cares about. >> as far as the democrats, in my opinion there argument is dated. and it is old. they have already made up their minds that they're not going to give him a chance. and they are going to spend the next four years resisting and complaining about everything he does. and they won't get everything done and that's unfortunate. . >> and hearing some of the responses is that they are wondering, with these ideas and plans you have outlined, where are we going to see that ? how are we going to pay for some of that stuff ?
4:32 pm
>> they are saying where it is going to come from ? >> and those are valid questions. the next he said he is going to introduce the budget in the upcoming months. and we will look at it then. i am sure that we will be pleasantly surprised. so far the people who have not supported him, president trump has said many times that he is in the business of keeping promises and that is what we have seen from them so far. and i believe he will continue to do that. . >> we want to touch in your background. you have been in the republican party. i want to ask you with watching last night's speech, why do you think it is that the majority of the black community does not support donald trump ? >> i think it's more of a democrat/republican thing rather than a donald trump thing.
4:33 pm
being an african-american woman myself, i was a democrat my whole life until i decided to change to the republican party. i felt like it suits me better. i feel like it suits the black immunity better. i believe that the african americans have a placeable parties. and we should be diversified and we should encourage more african-americans to become members of the republican parties. we are doing ourselves a severe disservice by only belonging to one party. i can get out there and others like me can get up there and let people know that, we do belong to both parties and there is a place for us to both parties. and that is the way it should be. >> thank you so much for being here with us. ground was broken this morning on a major improvement project for gimenez avenue in san francisco. state officials lined up while

4:36 pm
an emergency. is team of scientists are looking into drone technology as a way to cloud see. they say it could be the future of the industry. scientist and nevada may have found another use for drones, making it rain. they want to increase precipitation by using unmanned aerial vehicles to seed the clouds person and i believe that we are the first in the country and maybe in the world to use drones for cloud seeding. . >> this is usually done by a pilot flying a plane. using a drone will be cheaper and safer. as an you don't have a man flying into the harsh conditions. >> while there is no scientific consensus, cloud seeding can alter the weather and provide minimal relief. . >> we can get 10% more snowpack in the mountains. that little bit of extra water sometimes is enough to keep a couple of crops alive. and key people from needing to go into trout restrictions. . >> scientists are conducting preliminary tests with the drone. they codified the drone in a

dub nation holding its collective breath after kevin durant went down in a heap last night. it happened in last night's loss to the wizards. the prognosis, it is a grade 2 strain and a bold brace on -- a bone bruise on his tibia. will he be ready to go ? let's find out. we welcome dr. mark safran. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me prison at a grade 2 strain, what does that mean ? >> the mcl is the medial collateral ligament. it is the most commonly injured ligament in the knee.
4:41 pm
we have grades one, two, and three. >> how long do you think that will take to heal ? >> not specifically about heaven durant, but grade 2 tends to take about 4-6 weeks to heal . >> i heard the bone bruise may be a bigger deal long-term. >> usually, to sprained a ligament, this is the right knee. this is the medial collateral ligament. two strain it has to be stretched. there is a force opening up on the inside so it levers on the outer side. so when it pushes against the leg bone, it has to push
4:42 pm
against there. and if it pushes a lot you can get bone bruising. you would almost expect that from some degree. it does not affect the ability for the mcl to heal. >> i know you don't have a crystal ball, do you see him playing some time ? is that realistic ? >> i would think so. in general most people can heal between 4-6 weeks. he has a great medical staff and is a healthy young guy. you would expect that it should heal in 4-6 weeks. and that the playoffs will most likely be in the picture. . >> we are looking at some video. talk about his rehab program. what is in store for him in the next month ? >> they will try to reduce the swelling in his knee. and work on his range of motion so that his knee does not get stiff. and they will strengthen his leg.
4:43 pm
and they will try to avoid side to side movements that will strain or stress the ligament while it is trying to heal. often times he would be using a brace to help protect the ligament. and if he is having trouble walking because of the injury, he might be on crutches for a little bit until things calm down. . >> is this is the worst injury that can happen to a basketball player ? the quick energy going side to side ? >> not really. we hear more about the acl. when that tears that is usually at the end of the season. the mcl does heal. he should ultimately yield fine and be able to get that going up and down. i think last year stephen curry also had mcl injury. and you see, he is back well.
4:44 pm
i think the expectation is that this should heal fine. this is not the worst thing that can happen. this will heal. he should not have any long- term consequences from this injury. it should not affect him down the rope his neck that is good news. >> thank you so much for your insight. a beautiful wednesday here in the bay area. lots of sunshine. the storm track is not here. we have mostly clear conditions. in the site this is our san rafael camera looking out toward san francisco. nothing but clear conditions. it's nice to have this break in the rain fall. we really need it. it was like it continues into your thursday and friday as well. on friday you will notice some changes. right now we have mostly clear conditions up and down the coast. we will see mostly sunny skies in your rica and down towards monterey bay. current numbers, 60s toward san
